Responding to questions regarding the Indian Prime Minister’s tweet about the events of 1947, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated:
No modern state is so much in contradiction with itself as the Indian state – the so-called “largest democracy”.
It is shameful that the practitioners of “Hindutva” ideology, and purveyors of hate and violence, would so hypocritically and one-sidedly invoke the tragic events and mass migration that occurred in the wake of Independence in 1947. Distorting history and stoking communalism is the special forte of the RSS-BJP regime. Far from doing anything to heal old wounds, they would go to any extent to sow further dissensions for electoral gains. We are sure that the people of goodwill in India would completely reject this political and publicity stunt that only seeks to divide.
